Plod Unhappy

It appears that the Filth are a tad upset that company owned cars used by staff who are caught speeding are not getting points on their licence.

There is a loophole you see.

Earlier this year, legislation under the Road Safety Act (2006) was brought into force to increase the licence penalty from three to six points for registered vehicle keepers who do not disclose the driver. It did not however increase the maximum fine for the offence, which stayed at £1 000.

Now a grand is not all that much to a big company who rely on valuable employees whose work relies on driving around the country, so they are refusing to name the guilty drivers and instead, happily pay off the fine.

The miffed the vice-president of the Police Superintendents' Association, said: "This brings the law into disrepute."

Ah, diddums...
